This session is organised by the Engineers against Poverty, Knowledge Partner of the virtual 2021 OECD Global Anti-Corruption & Integrity Forum. The language of this session is English. Covid-19 has exposed critical gaps in healthcare and other vital infrastructure leaving few to doubt that building resilience against similar crises will require huge investment in infrastructure and services. Similarly, financial institutions have recognised the importance of infrastructure in the economic recovery. Despite this, uncertainty remains on how governments will react. What is agreed is that every penny must be spent wisely, with calls for better governance and innovative technologies and approaches. In this session Engineers Against Poverty will bring together opinion formers to look at the future of infrastructure investment and how to overcome integrity risks within it, exploring how open data platforms, data analytics and blockchain and approaches in financing can manage risk and help mobilise private investment. The insights shared will be particularly valuable for low-income countries facing significant investment needs. They will be key to building infrastructure back better, ensuring resilience and green and inclusive infrastructure. Speakers: Natalie Forysuk, Deputy Minister for Infrastructure, Ukraine. Rajiv Lal, founder and former Chair of the Infrastructure Development Finance Company (IDFC), India. Camilo Cetina, Main Lead - Integrity and Governance, Development Bank of Latin America (CAF). Moderator: Petter Matthews, former Chair of the C20 Infrastructure Working (2019 and 2020) and Executive Director, Engineers Against Poverty.
